As a collision repair shop owner who really cares
about their customers and providing quality repairs…
Marcia Boyce, owner of Boyce Body Werks in
Batavia would like to remind everyone that it is very
important to choose a body shop that will be your
advocate during the repair process…using quality
(OEM) parts, and will fight for you if they feel it is not
in your best interest to repair the car. Even though your
insurance company wants you to have ABC Body Shop
repair your damaged vehicle. They may not be the best
option—do your homework! Make it your choice who
repairs you car after an accident!
